I feel like Buddy the Elf when he shouts: "I'm in love, I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it!" Yes, that's how I feel about Deborah Lippmann Marrakesh Express from the Fantastical Holiday 2014 Collection.

Seriously, let's take another look...

Another look at Deborah Lippmann Marrakesh Express. Just look at that gold glitter!

Deborah Lippmann describes this color as "spiced sienna," and I think that's completely accurate. It reminds me of the color Burnt Sienna from the Crayola 64-Count Box of my childhood ... but pumped up with rough-cut gold glitter. Tons of gold flakies are baked right into the formula, and I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it's easy to get them from the bottle onto the nail. Sometimes with larger glitters I find that I have to pour the polish onto a plate and deliberately place the glitter onto the nail, but not so with this polish -- the particles come out in droves!

I used two coats for completely opaque coverage and found the polish to be very easy to work with. I was worried that the glitter particles might sink into the middle of the two coats and get covered up, but this didn't happen -- in fact, two coats just made the final result more gold-flecked!

The bottom of the bottle. I'll never stop loving Deb's square bottle shape.

In short? This is a polish that STUNS. I've already gotten tons of compliments at work this morning, and I don't see them slowing down anytime soon! Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go and stare at my nails some more...
